In this post, we’ll take a quick look at some of the causes of homelessness, as well as ways in which to truly fight it.
Many people experience homelessness for the first time due to one or more of the following reasons:
- Identity theft or fraud often results in the victim being shut-out of their career, community, or other life-stabilizing aspect(s) and becoming homeless. This may look like ‘bad luck’ and, for example, can happen when someone is treated unfairly in the professional world or is the victim of blackmail and other forms of harassment.
- Domestic violence or abuse often results in the victim becoming homeless. A victim of domestic abuse may have it in mind to ‘escape’ for months or even years, however the perpetrator generally makes doing so as difficult as possible.
